Energy Survey
The energy surveys were successfully completed on 20 residential properties and also Brabin’s School and the Village Hall in November 2022. The findings from these will help shape the concept design for the community heat network as it develops.

Test Borehole
In January 2023 we drilled a trial borehole next to the Community Hall and tested the borehole for suitability to support a community-owned ambient borehole network in Chipping. The borehole confirmed that the geology and hydrology in Chipping is suitable to support this kind of project and indicated that a single borehole would provide sufficient heat for most small to medium sized dwellings in the area.

Support Our Community Heat Network
Chipping Community Energy are working as a project partner on a funding application being submitted to the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, for grant support to raise community finance to build out a community owned heat network for Chipping.

As part of this we are hoping to raise local support for the project, by asking members of the community to complete our short survey which you can find here – this will help inform and support the funding application.

Community Events
During the course of the project, we will be holding community events to update the local community on the project as it develops. We will update this web page to include details for any events as they are organised.
